English summary: Recent developments in technology have given rise to the impression that the boundaries imposed by our bodiliness can somehow be overcome. The increasing philosophical interest in bodiliness as an unavoidable human condition can be seen as a response to this far too comfortable impression. The essays in this volume address the topic of bodiliness from a theological point of view. They show that our perceptions of, and relationships with, one another cannot be divorced from our bodily condition, and that this existential reality affects significantly how we understand our relationship with God. The contributions also address how we can best deal with the fragility of our bodily condition, as well as the challenges that technological and medical procedures for altering the appearance and constitution of our bodies pose. Special attention is given to how liturgical experience not only offers us a means to respond to these challenges but also to deepen our understanding of Christian communities as ineluctably bodily. German description: Die technologischen Entwicklungen unserer Zeit erwecken den Eindruck, dass wir unseren Leib verbessern und seine Grenzen mit ihrer Hilfe uberwinden konnen. Das hohe philosophische Interesse an der leiblichen Verfasstheit des Menschen ist moglicherweise eine Gegenreaktion auf diese Entwicklung. Dieser Band bietet theologische Perspektiven zu diesem Thema. Die Beitrage vertreten ein integratives Verstandnis vom Menschen, zu dem Leiblichkeit als unabdingbare Charakteristik gehort. Sie zeigen, wie diese Leiblichkeit die Art und Weise bedingt, wie wir uns wahrnehmen und miteinander in Beziehung treten und wie sich diese Grundbedingung auch auf unsere Beziehung zu Gott auswirkt. Gegen eine einseitige Perspektive der Verbesserung des Korpers stellen die Autoren einen differenzierten Umgang mit dessen Verwundbarkeit. Die Beitrager stellen die Bedeutung der Leiblichkeit fur den Vollzug der Liturgie und fur ein zeitgemasses Verstandnis von christlicher Gemeinde und diakonischer Arbeit heraus.

This book explores the psychosocial significance of loss and exclusion in the lives of many Iranian immigrants living in London since the Iranian revolution of 1979. It addresses the experiences of middle-class Iranians who left Iran in both ‘voluntary’ contexts (immigration) and in ‘enforced’ contexts (exile). The author elucidates the experiences of ‘ordinary’ middle-class Iranians who chose to leave Iran given the socio-politico-cultural context of the changes wrought by the Islamic Republic in Iranian society. Mahnaz Sekechi argues that losses of country, liberty and security in Iran combined with varying degrees of social exclusion and downward mobility in London have led to an encapsulated sadness for many, despite their capacity for creative living. The book also demonstrates the value of psychosocial analysis in understanding dislocations in general and their effects on wellbeing.

Until now, little existed in the way of a theory of gender and aging. This volume fills the void. Rich with primary data, Women Growing Older presents new research on older women and relates it to the psychology of adult development and aging. After an introductory chapter that brings together conceptions of gender and aging, well-known contributors examine how women decide to balance work and career, marriage and motherhood, and the results of such life decisions. The authors then take an adult life-span approach to Americans' gender and racial stereotypes of young, middle-aged, and elderly women. A penetrating historical analysis of cultural images and the nature of cognition, mind, and creativity follows. The contributors also present a life-span approach to attachment theory and women's social relations. They also take a look at the relevance of psychodynamic theories for understanding gender among older women. Students, researchers, and professionals in the fields of aging, gender, psychology, sociology, family studies, social work, and nursing will appreciate the excellent material and insights contained in Women Growing Older. "Women Growing Older is a powerful and a highly technical book. . . . The authors describe how the focus on sex differences rather than on similarities serves to perpetuate male dominance. Their research findings demonstrate that resulting sex differences are invariably used against women. Sex roles are internalized early in life by the process of social learning and socialization; these are then enacted into adulthood in different social settings. Their research looks at the content of gender stereotypes and they then explores the process that people use in deciding what other people are like." --Journal of Mental Health and Aging "This edited book has several major strengths. A portion of the book addresses the ways in which women balance work and family and the consequences of these decisions or 'choices' in late life. Such research is timely and especially challenging given the differential experience of successive cohorts that accompanies historical shifts in assessments of family life. Given its importance, this topic could fill an entire text itself. . . . This volume provides an important contribution to the literature. It is a valuable resource for the college or master's level student of psychology, women's studies, and gerontology." --Journal of Women and Aging "The chapters combine reviews and presentation of fresh empirical data. A valuable compilation. Upper-division graduate through faculty." --Choice "This is the first book (of which I am aware) to provide a theoretical integration of feminist perspectives on the psychology of aging in terms of women's experiences. I believe the editors have done a superb job of selecting chapter authors, and the authors in turn have written interesting, enlightening, and provocative analyses of gender issues in adult development and aging. I am impressed with the wide range of theoretical frameworks that the authors incorporated in their analyses; researchers and students alike should find plenty of ideas for useful approaches to their own projects. . . . I am also impressed with the range of methods and samples represented in the chapters. By their approach to selecting the contents of the book, the editors employed feminist principles of acknowledging (a) heterogeneity of experience across groups of women, whether categorized by cohort, racial ethnic background, or stage of the life course, and (b) the importance of using diverse methods to gather data. Finally, I liked he way the authors locate their topics and theoretical approaches in the historical context of the development of knowledge so that readers gain understanding of some of the reasons that current research and theory development are at their current statuses. Thus, both the method and the content of the book reflect the principles the editors and authors advocate." --Rosemary Blieszner, Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University "This is an interesting and varied book. . . . It is useful in an area which has traditionally perceived gender as almost a peripheral factor in the psychological experience of older women. . . . definitely worth a look." --Health Psychology Update "Turner's introduction and Labouvie-Vief's chapter `Women's Creativity and Images of Gender' take a different form. The former is an excellent summary of the book's purpose, a brief description of differing theoretical perspectives represented in the book as well as its significant omissions, and concise summaries of the subsequent chapters. The book is useful for those who want a quick overview of specific psychological theories and their related literature. The authors...clearly describe the approach they are using, discuss relevant constructs, and refer to related literature. ...A good supplementary reader in gender and/or aging related courses." --Contemporary Gerontology

Social workers work with people at all stages of life, tackling a multitude of personal, social, health, welfare, legal and educational issues. As a result, all social work students need to understand human growth and development throughout the lifespan. This introductory text provides a knowledge base about human development from conception to death. It is designed to encourage understanding of a wide range of experiences, including some very difficult ones, such as child abuse, the developmental trajectories of children in care, mental distress, the experience of people with dementia, the experience of torture victims and untimely bereavements. Using engaging narratives to illustrate real-life situations, the author analyses them to demonstrate the link between theory, and different theoretical approaches, and practice. Packed with case studies, this student-friendly book includes overviews, summaries, questions and further reading in each chapter as well as a more formal academic section designed to challenge and intrigue students. A reference section contains a glossary and overviews of the principal theories discussed throughout the book. It is an essential read for all social work students.
